NAM HWA OPERA

南华潮剧社的历史可追溯至1963年由一群志同道合的潮剧爱好者所成立的“南华潮剧社”。当年成立的宗旨纯为联络同好之情谊,研究戏曲,弘扬潮人优秀传统文化。
为使剧务与时并进,南华在2015年4月获准为慈善机构,享有捐款扣税优惠。2017年,南华也获得国家艺术理事会主要辅助计划下为期三年的拨款。

南华多年来坚守弘扬潮剧传统的理念,同时积极寻求卓越表演艺术领域的突破。除了呈献经典演出剧目之外,南华也大胆尝试创新,通过结合现代科技及融合不同流派等方式,提高观众的参与度及提升他们的感官体验。

南华亦不遗余力开展无数场对外演出和工作坊,以把触角伸向更多观众,尤其是年轻一代。南华并积极服务社会公益事业,参与各项义演。

近年来,南华更在国际舞台上大放异彩,足迹遍布中国、南韩、柬埔寨、马来西亚和德国,也在潮剧发祥地中国广东多次演出,皆获好评。

2018年庆祝成立55周年之际,南华易名“南华潮剧社”,誓言要在更明确的定位下继续努力,带领新加坡潮剧精益求精,更上一层楼!

Founded in 1963 by avid fans of Teochew Opera, Nam Hwa Opera (NHO) has grown into one of Singapore’s most prominent and prolific Teochew Opera companies. NHO mission is to preserve, develop and promote traditional Teochew Opera as an important heritage of Singapore. NHO is also home to the Nam Hwa Teochew Music Ensemble.

NHO champions artistic excellence in Teochew Opera. Alongside presentations of classics from the traditional repertoire in our core performances, we also boldly experiment with new genres and technologies to enhance audience engagement and experiences.

We believe that Teochew Opera should remain a part of our everyday lives. As such, NHO’s numerous workshops and outreach performances nurtures new performers and audiences amongst the young and young at heart. Ensuring that everyone has access to our quality programmes is also important to us. NHO regularly presents programmes at schools, community spaces, voluntary welfare organisations and other charitable institutions.

NHO also promotes the Singapore brand of Teochew Opera through international performances and cultural exchanges. On top of hosting international performers, NHO has performed in countries such as South Korea, Cambodia, Malaysia and Germany. NHO has also shared the stage on multiple occasions with Teochew Opera doyens in the artform’s birthplace of Guangdong, China.

With the support of a dedicated and driven community of artists, audiences, leaders, members and sponsors, NHO continues to inspire and reach new heights with Singapore Teochew Opera.
